Dpkg::Changelog::Entry - represents a changelog entry
This object represents a changelog entry. It is composed of a set of lines with specific purpose: an header line, changes lines, a trailer line. Blank lines can be between those kind of lines.
$entry = Dpkg::Changelog::Entry->new() Creates a new object. It doesn't represent a real changelog entry until one has been successfully parsed or built from scratch. $str = $entry->output() "$entry" Get a string representation of the changelog entry. $entry->output($fh) Print the string representation of the changelog entry to a filehandle. $entry->get_part($part) Return either a string (for a single line) or an array ref (for multiple lines) corresponding to the requested part. $part can be "header, "changes", "trailer", "blank_after_header", "blank_after_changes", "blank_after_trailer". $entry->set_part($part, $value) Set the value of the corresponding part. $value can be a string or an array ref. $entry->extend_part($part, $value) Concatenate $value at the end of the part. If the part is already a multi-line value, $value is added as a new line otherwise it's concatenated at the end of the current line. $is_empty = $entry->is_empty() Returns 1 if the changelog entry doesn't contain anything at all. Returns 0 as soon as it contains something in any of its non-blank parts. $entry->normalize() Normalize the content. Strip whitespaces at end of lines, use a single empty line to separate each part. $src = $entry->get_source() Return the name of the source package associated to the changelog entry. $ver = $entry->get_version() Return the version associated to the changelog entry. @dists = $entry->get_distributions() Return a list of target distributions for this version. $fields = $entry->get_optional_fields() Return a set of optional fields exposed by the changelog entry. It always returns a Dpkg::Control object (possibly empty though). $urgency = $entry->get_urgency() Return the urgency of the associated upload. $maint = $entry->get_maintainer() Return the string identifying the person who signed this changelog entry. $time = $entry->get_timestamp() Return the timestamp of the changelog entry. $time = $entry->get_timepiece() Return the timestamp of the changelog entry as a Time::Piece object. This function might return undef if there was no timestamp. $str = $entry->get_dpkg_changes() Returns a string that is suitable for usage in a "Changes" field in the output format of "dpkg-parsechangelog".
